Brentwood Presbyterian Church Preschool
12000 San Vicente Blvd, Los Angeles , CA 90049
We follow a comprehensive, developmental curriculum which offers hands on activities designed to build awareness inMore young children and to enhance their cognitive development. Young children learn best while at play, therefore we also offer guided playtime, opportunities to interact socially with classmates and a variety of centers to appeal to their different interests and encourage learning. In addition to our daily curriculum, we provide the children with a movement and music program on alternate weeks. We use quality children's literature and songs as effective tools to help develop language skills and literacy. Also, our play yard is a wonderful place for children to socialize and further develop large motor skills. Afternoon Enrichment Program BPCP's Enrichment Program provides children the opportunity to explore interesting subjects in fun and creative ways. These extended days will encourage hands-on learning as children explore their interests in our thoughtfully prepared activities. Opportunities for children to dialogue, hypothesize and problem solve with their peers will lead to a richer understanding of each topic. Children will enjoy daily sensory, art, building and movement activities, along with dramatic play. They will encounter several thematic units that are diverse and separate from the themes and activities that comprise the morning program. Another great aspect of the Enrichment Program is in the special presenters, such as Soccer Shots, Funky Divas & Dudes, Kid’s Yoga, and fieldtrips that happen twice a month within each theme. This program is designed for children ages 3.5 to 5 years old and is molded to meet age appropriate needs. This is a great way to get children prepared for the kindergarten experience.

West LA Community Police Station (LAPD)
1663 Butler Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90025

Tucked away on a north-south side street east of Sepulveda Boulevard and south of Santa Monica Boulevard, past theMore faded  "Isle of California" mural on the recording studio's back wall, lies LAPD's West LA Community Police Station. It serves Brentwood and other huge swaths of West Los Angeles (see PDF).

According to the station, "the West Los Angeles Community Police Station provides service to a diverse residential population that exceeds 228,000 people. Throughout the day, the business and residential population swells to approximately a half million people. The increase is due to those who either pursue knowledge and skills training at educational and professional institutes, including the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and those who work or visit the neighborhoods of West Los Angeles. West Los Angeles officers protect and serve people within the station's boundaries of 65.14 square miles and 748 street miles, bordering the cities of Beverly Hills, Culver City and Santa Monica, and Los Angeles County and the Pacific Ocean. In comparison to the other 17 community police stations, West Los Angeles is responsible for the largest number of square miles."

Luckily, Brentwood has few crimes. The occasional residential burglary or "theft from vehicle" shows up on the police blotter, but rarely. Most Brentwood police issues revolve around traffic and the occasional code enforcement.

We can expect more problems from the inevitably increasing clashes between the city and country aspects of Brentwood.

Not that it's a trendsetter, but the road-rage incident where a motorist in a hurry ran down two cyclists in Mandeville Canyon is an indication of lifestyle clashes that mark our community. 

Traffic is an issue in Brentwood, especially as drivers speed along Sunset Boulevard. Blind curves and fast driving resulted in the death of a teenager on her way to catch an early-morning school bus. (A shrine to Julia Siegler still stands at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Cliffwood Avenue.)

And then there are the equestrians of Old Ranch Road and environs. Will an impatient motorist act out there? Only time will tell, but it will be city versus country all over again.

Back to the West Los Angeles Station. There's an ATM inside, in case you see sketchy characters hanging around your local cash machine, and it's a Safe House for kids who feel threatened on the way to or from school.

There are classes for community volunteer emergency workers and emailed newsletters, and it's around the corner from the West LA Courthouse. 

Whether the proximity to the court is a bug or a feature is up to you.
